Challenge to change the way I respond to weight loss stress
Wednesday, June 26, 2013
When the scale goes down, I do my happy dance. I imagine myself moving magically towards my goal and I am hopeful.
When the scale goes up I get discouraged and depressed.
In the past, I would give up. Things were "not working and never would".
I have been on my updated plan, revised meds, and renewed fitness for more than 3 months now, and I don't plan on giving up.
I am still discouraged, but as I read the success stories from the stars on Sparkpeople, I feel encouraged.
This time is different, and I will keep going. Health and fitness are improving every day! The scale is just one piece of the puzzle.
My blood sugar readings are great.
I am tracking every day and keeping my calorie intake to around 1500 calories a day.
I will get there!
